Save Your Money While You're Young

Save Your Money While You're Young

Come all you jolly good fellows, I'll sing to you a song
It's all about them shanteyboys and it won't take me long
For it's now that I regret the day, while I'm working out
  in the cold
Save your money when you're young, me boys, you'll need it
    when you're old

For once I was a shantey boy, now wasn't I a lad?
And the way I spent me money, now wasn't it too bad?
But it's now that I regret the day, while I'm working
   out in the cold
Save your money when you're young, me boys, you'll need it
    when you're old

And if you are a married man, I'll tell you what to do
Just be good to you're wife and family, as you have
    sworn to do
Stay away from all grog shops where liquor is bought and sold
Save your money when you're young, me boys, you'll need it
    when you're old

And if you are a single man, I'll tell you what to do
Just find yourself some pretty young girl that to you will
    prove true
Just find yourself some pretty girl that is not over bold
That  will stick to you through life and be a comfort when
   you're old

For once I was a shanty boy, now wasn't I a lad?
And the way I spent me money, now wasn't it too bad?
But it's now that I regret the day, while I'm working
   out in the cold
Save your money when you're young, me boys, you'll need it
    when you're old
